    (Meanwhile, for what it's worth, Zealous Inquisitor is the only one never to appear in the modern card frame with a black border. :p )

    Well, maybe not in English, but it sure did in Russian.

    (I got this pointed out to me when I was trying to claim Blood Moon never got printed in modern frame and black border. Now I can spread the knowledge/nitpicking. :-))

    Quote from Sepherus
    they put a verdant catacomb into an event deck, im sure they could break the mold and put a shock if they wanted to.

    Honestly I don't see any mold-breaking about the fetchland. It was in one of the Magic 2012 event decks, when fetchlands are 3 months before rotation.

    It won't surprise me at all if they start putting one-of shocklands in Theros block or Magic 2015 event decks, but not this one.

  • posted a message on Dragon Maze- Render Silent
    Quote from Dire Wombat
    After Dissipate rotates, the playable all-purpose counterspell options we know about will be:

    1) Cancel
    2) Counterflux
    3) Syncopate
    4) Render Silent
    5) Don't Bother

    What's wrong with Psychic Strike?

    I am also expecting a blue and green 3 CMC couterspell in Dragon's Maze.

  • posted a message on Chinese Saviors of Kamigawa
    Not knowing what chase rares are in Saviors, I still think it would probably generate enough interests in a Chinese card shop. I witnessed two boxes of Rise of Eldrazi flying off shelves when I went back to Beijing this winter.

    If you are not short of cash and want it away soon, I'd say wait to find a player genuinely interested in Chinese boosters. Maybe not $65 interested, but as a Chinese speaker myself, I would be willing to buy it for $50 if I have that cash and can find some other Chinese speaking players to play sealed/pack war with me.

    Quote from jeffbcrandall

    Uncommon/common sets: $9 x 1.8/box = $16

    With 80 uncommons in Return to Ravnica, one only gets 1.35 sets per box now.

    Does the awkward syntax in the second part have to do with the fact that you could potentially name the same color twice?

    I don't think you can name the same color twice.

    I think the wording is (partly) due to the possibility of changing a spell's color while it's on stack.

    Quote from splashing black
    The way things have been going for LD it'll be the 5 mana with 8 mana for overload but it will blow yours up as well.

    I agree. If such an Overloadable land destruction spell gets printed, it's going to be either "target land" (so it destroys all lands including yours when Overloaded) or "target non-basic land you don't control".

    ~Slime shaping

    Looking at past examples, I don't think the English name would have slime in it. If I had to guess, it would be a one-word name ending with -morphose (c.f. Manamorphose).

  • posted a message on [RTR] Rarity Breakdown (and 10 extra cards)
    Quote from Bernd das Brot

    On normal sets the sheets are:
    sheet 1 = 53 rares + 53 rares + 15 mythics = 121 cards
    sheet 2 = 60 uncommons + 60 uncommons = 120 cards + 1 blank
    sheet 3 = 101 commons + 20 basic lands = 121 cards

    Basic lands have always been on their own separate sheet.

    I never figured out the exact setup, but I believe the commons have two print sheets (and the ten commons in a booster pack are actually two groups, each from one sheet). I would guess Return to Ravnica has 10 more commons in additional to the 10 more uncommons, i.e. 111 C + 70 U + 53 R + 15 M + 25 L = 274 cards.

  • posted a message on The other charms
    Quote from rafl
    I suppose Green will get Fight in some charm. Any thoughts where? Selesnya? Maybe Gruul?

    Golgari feels the most fitting, both flavor and mechanic wise.

    The Selesnya one is so hard to guess, as white and green overlaps a lot. I just hope the third mode is not life gain.

  • posted a message on Life from the the loam
    To compare with, the previous high-price (more than $10 pre-reprint) cards that got reprinted in Duel Decks are Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Knight of the Reliquary, and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, as far as I can think of. None of them is in a similar position as Life from the Loam though, regarding how much it's played, casual vs. competitive, how long it has rotated out of Standard, etc.

  • posted a message on [sinker] Sealed format?
    Quote from Gareth_Trent
    I mean why not just use the same guild packs as used in RTR and GTC releases?

    Because it contains all old cards, and more specifically, a promo card from a previous set, therefore is not suitable for the purpose of generating hype for the newly-released set?

  • posted a message on [sinker] Sealed format?
    It'll be three sinker packs, one Ravnica, one Gatecrash and one guild pack.

    Sinker-specific guild packs isn't really feasible.

    Sinker is a small set. A usual small set has 60 commons. So 6 commons per guild, at most. A pack would need 10 commons.

    The uncommon slots (usually 40 per small set, 3 per pack) is very awkward as well.

    The place of the land is also were you get a possible foil.

    Not to disagree on your other points, but I think a foil replaces a common, not the basic land.
